Review: JustMobile AluBase – An Elegant Way to Keep Your MacBook Off Your Desk

I like to keep my desk organized and tidy so I have room to film videos or do work when needed. Before receiving the AluBase from JustMobile, my Macbook would always take up a good amount of space. Now, it sits standing vertical at the back of my desk against the wall. A perfect solution.


The AluBase is compatible with all MacBook Pro’s and Air’s on the market, as well as the discontinued stand alone Macbook. It has a detachable inner liner that can easily be removed depending on the thickness of your Macbook. The AluBase itself is made out of aluminum, and has a nice look and feel to it.

While your Macbook is in the stand, all ports are obviously accessible, so you use USB ports, etc, as you see fit.  Since the ports are all open, it can also be used to store your Macbook while using an external display. My Macbook in no way gives the appearance or feels like it will topple over while stored in the AluBase.

Verdict [rating=5/5]

For what it does, the AluBase is awesome. It keeps my Macbook off of the desk so I have more room to work. Everything about the AluBase from design or quality is fantastic. It retails for $49.99 on JustMobile’s website. The price of the AluBase may be considered a bit much for just a stand. However, like I said, it is worth it for the design and quality alone. The AluBase does its job quite well, so for that I give it a five star rating.
